Form & Verdict

Now 10lb lower than when runner-up at Catterick in March but he was pulled up at Sedgefield on his reappearance and looked beaten when hampered/unseating two out here last time; a big turnaround is needed in a first-time visor (replacing usual cheekpieces).

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.

Form & Verdict

Third in this race last year (when 10l behind neck runner-up Prince Dundee) when stamina didn't appear to be an issue; better than ever the last twice, with wins at Cartmel (3m1f, good) and Carlisle (3m2f, good to soft), and he'll be fine if soft ground prevails; has to be respected.

Late-blooming veteran who is best known as a Cartmel specialist; drew clear to win by 3m5f there (good ground) last spring but signed off in the autumn with two disappointing runs and remains on a fairly tough mark.

Inconsistent 10yo who was pulled up at Bangor just 18 days ago, but that was a rare run over hurdles and he's shown some good chase form this season (including 3m5f win at Cartmel); not discounted now back over fences.

Form & Verdict

In good form since the cheekpieces went on and this Irish raider won at Bangor (3m, good to soft) three weeks ago; up 8lb and untested beyond an extended 3m1f, but his strong finishing effort last time suggests he's well worth a go at today's distance; handles soft; firmly in calculations.

All four wins have come here (3m, good-soft), the latest in June, and he went very close in this race last year; fair run at Kelso last month when back from a break and he could build on that today; player.

Yet to win away from Hexham but bounced back from rare poor run when battling on for fourth at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) in December and ought to be better suited by today's quicker ground; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Novice who has won twice over fences here this season (3m, good/good to soft) and he was a creditable third in the Durham National at Sedgefield (3m5f, good) last month, when he'd have been closer but for a bad blunder three out; also effective on soft ground; could play a leading role.
